The Paramount Chief of Abura Dunkwa Traditional Area, Nana Asokwa Kwagire II has expressed grief over the inability of the government to respond to the needs of the Aburaman Senior High School(SHS) as the lack of boys dormitory in the school has affected them in diverse ways.
According to him, Aburaman SHS is among the publicly recognized Senior High Schools in Ghana but the school faces serious challenges as students use classrooms as their dormitory after classes.
In an exclusive interview with Mynewsgh.com, Nana Kwagire expressed sadness that the students, after classes pack all the tables and chairs outside to enable them sleep in the classrooms and return the furniture back the next day for classes.
He revealed to Mynewsgh.com that students mattresses, chop boxes and trucks have been filled in one classroom due to lack of dormitory.
Nana Kwagire said several appeals have been made to the government through the GETFund to provide facilities for the School and all have fallen on deaf ears.
He expressed worry that Aburaman Senior High School has so many abandoned projects since late John Jerry Rawlings’ regime through Ex-president John Agyekum Kuffour, John Dramani Mahama to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s era. He warned politicians to desist from doing politics with educational infrastructures.
Nana Kwagire again pleaded with President Nana Addo to use his last term to provide quality education for Aburaman Senior High School by completing all the abandoned projects within the school to boost teaching and learning in the school.
He hinted that due to the dirty politics at the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese District Assembly by the Assembly Members, the District does not have any Presiding Member to fight for developmental projects in the district.
According to the Chief, he is ready to be the Presiding Member(PM) for Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese district assembly if President Nana Addo gives him the chance to enable him change the bad state of Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese.
He said he is ready to offer 200 acres of land to investors and government as part of the government, One District, One Factory policy to ensure creation of youth employment in the area.
Nana Kwagire appealed for the construction of better roads of Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese district and provision of streetlights since the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese District assembly has failed them.
“Even all the cemeteries in Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese have lights but there is total darkness in the township and streets as well” he lamented.
He again appealed to the President to appoint someone from Abura Dunkwa to serve in the District as the District Chief Executive(DCE) since all the past DCEs has failed to develop the area.
